#1237 closed enhancement (fixed)

Add locks to jCache::call to prevent multiple calls on CPU high-consuming functions

When calling jCache::call, we me be faced to a problem when calling a function which needs a lot of CPU time to run.

Indeed, on heavy traffic site, several client requests may all lead to a jCache:call on a single function with the same args. As the results of this function call is cached after this function answered, we may have a call for each request if this function lasts too long.

I propose to have a lock system to prevent this. The way it works in my patch is to insert a lock as a jCache value before function call and delete it after function results has been stored. Other clients wait for the lock to be released and then read the JCache value stored by the first call (of the first request) to jCache::call.

This patch has not been production-tested yet. But it works on my dev machine.

I managed to prevent the lock from being eternal to avoid side-effects (e.g. killing web server while the function called by jCache::call is running). May be we should also try{ } catch{ } this function call. I let PHP gurus having a better point of view about this ...

After thinking again about it, here is a new patch which should lead to fewer accesses to jCache readings.

Seems to be ok for me.I justed changed the name of the lock key, to minimize the conflict with a "real" key.
